This greenway is considered the 'crown jewel' of Longmont's trail system as it links a variety of parks, schools, other trails and commercial areas along its length.
Currently the trail runs approximately 8 miles from Golden Ponds (at Third Avenue, west of Hover Street) to Sandstone Ranch. The St. Vrain Greenway is part of the Front Range Trail plan--a regional trail system that will some day run from Wyoming to New Mexico.
Many miles of concrete bike paths and gravel walking paths, as well as nature trails, welcome visitors of all kinds to the Greenway. Several other city parks abut the Greenway, including Golden Ponds, Roger's Grove, Izaak Walton Pond, Sandstone Ranch Nature Area, and the future Dickens Farm Nature Area (just east of Main Street). The trail also connects to Left Hand Greenway.
Existing trailheads can be found at Golden Ponds, Roger's Grove, Boulder County Fairgrounds, Izaak Walton Pond, South Pratt Parkway, the western end of the Harvest Junction North commercial development, 119th Street, and at Sandstone Ranch.
